Morgs loving life at Adams Park

11 December 2012

In-form forward Dean Morgan says he is relishing playing under boss Gareth Ainsworth.

Man-of-the-match Morgan scored both of the Chairboys’ goals in last Saturday’s 2-2 draw with Morecambe – his first strikes at Adams Park since joining the Blues. 

“It’s an opportunity for me to play and show people what I can do,” he told Chairboys Player.

“People say I’ve had so many clubs, but for various reasons other than my ability. To be here playing and enjoying it is where I want to be every week. Even their manager said to me ‘you were different class’ and if I can do that every week then I shouldn’t be playing at this level.

“Gaz says to me ‘do what you’re good at but work hard.’ There’s not much more he can say to me because I naturally work as hard as I can and hopefully do what I’m good at. 

“Gaz is a good guy and he pulled me in and said ‘I heard a lot of stories about you before you came in, but I haven’t seen any of it’ - that gave me a big lift.”

Morgan struck either side of the break to give Wanderers a 2-0 lead against the Shrimps, but the visitors hit back to rescue a point late on. 

However, the 29-year-old believes the Chairboys showed more than enough to prove that they are continuing to move in the right direction, especially before being reduced to 10 men.

He said: “I put it on my Blackberry status that I thought I would score and luckily enough I did. I’m happy with that, but just disappointed we only came away with a point.

“Matty McClure’s defended the corner well for us and I heard the full-back behind me say ‘I’m going to head it’ and I thought ‘you’re not getting this.’ I don’t think the other player heard him and they came together and I was lucky enough to gamble. Obviously the rest is history.

“When we were down to 10 men and I was up there on my own, I had to try and make something happen and luckily enough I did. A goal’s a goal at the end of the day - whether I tapped it in from two yards or ran from 50.

“We're still unbeaten in the last few weeks and I said from the day I came that we shouldn’t be in the position that we are in. There is so much potential. Gaz has brought us together and that has shown in the last four or five weeks. Now it’s about consistency - we have to maintain it.”

Morgan added: “We played well and we’ve played well in the last few weeks so our confidence shouldn’t take a knock. We had 10 men but gave a side above us a good game - I think every team should fear us now.”
